Casselberry Neighborhood Improvement Grant Program
What is the Neighborhood Improvement Grant Program?

The City Commission approved project funding in the amount of $50,000 for the 2017-2018 Neighborhood Improvement Grant Program (NIGP).  The purpose of the Neighborhood Improvement Grant Program (NIGP) is to incentivize residents and neighborhoods to enhance the curb appeal of their residence or community through citizen and government partnership to address exterior rehabilitation and renovation to residential areas.

 

As part of the NIGP, there are three (3) separate funding opportunities available to different individuals and organizations.

Homeowner Improvement Grant
Up to $750 award (no match) for qualified homeowners. Those individuals who own and occupy their single family homes within the City of Casselberry municipal limits.  Renters are not eligible. Mobile or manufactured homes are not eligible. The grant is limited to one (1) per household. If you have received a Homeowner Improvement Grant in the past, you are not eligible.

Neighborhood Beautification Grant
Up to $2,500 award with a 50% match by the applicant for qualified Contractual HOAs. Homeowner Associations (HOAs) currently collect dues from residents, which can also include Condo Associations as well. An organization or group may receive one (1) grant per year for two (2) consecutive years, but will not be eligible to receive a grant in year three (3). This cycle can be repeated. All HOAs must be in existence for at least one (1) year prior to submitting an application and shall be required to submit the appropriate paperwork for confirmation. Applicants must own and maintain the property where the project is located.

Neighborhood Empowerment Grant
Up to $7,500 award (no match) for qualified non-organized or volunteer neighborhood groups. Eligible organizations include those who are voluntary HOAs and do not collect dues, those organizations who are nonprofits that work within the community, neighborhood groups, and neighborhood districts. An organization or group may receive one (1) grant per year for two (2) consecutive years, but will not be eligible to receive a grant in year three (3). This cycle can be repeated. Applicants will need to show that a neighborhood group exists.  This can be done by providing minutes from a meeting, or by providing signatures of all group participants along with their addresses.
